Sam Reider and his band, hand-picked from the very finest on the New York scene, are rapidly becoming one of the most talked about musical experiences in the USA, and those in the know over here have already sensed the crackle created by a buzz that has carried his name around the world.
The Human Hands (his cream-of-the-crop players) were the talk of the town when they showcased at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City in 2018.
The debut album, Too Hot To Sleep, won them a huge amount of attention when released here. Songlines magazine awarded a prized Top Of The World rating, writer Doug Deloach saying it was “a lovely, lively romp through the mind of an exceptionally gifted band leader and composer.”
Although many of the individuals involved have played in the UK before, this will be the band’s UK debut.
